Progress as we 
achieve academically 

People do not realize that English is the 
basis of every phase of their life. As individuals 
we must be able to communicate with others 
and to convey our ideas and desires. When an 
individual studies English, he learns to com- 
municate with others both in speaking and in 
writing. Three years of English are required 
for graduation. In addition to regular English 
classes, journalism, speech, and advanced Eng- 
lish may be elected. Time spent in the reading- 
laboratory gives us a change to improve our 
reading skills and comprehension. English clas- 
ses stimulate our mind, and enable us to ex- 
press ourselves clearly. 

SET YOUR PACEKS! Pupils increase their reading a- 
bility when using the facilities of the reading lab. 

English opens door to self-expression 

ACCENT ON ENGLISH! David Schied and Ann Pitt- 
man deliver speeches to their English class. 

I'M 10 GKIvVr WlilTER! In English (-(imposition classes, 
we strive for our best literary achievements. 


Comprehension is aim in language lab 

ROLL THE TAPE! Advanced Spanish students use modern methods to leani 
the art of speaking the language fluently. 

The expansion of the student body was met 
in the Language Department with the addition 
of a new foreign language, French. The lang- 
uage curriculum now consists of classes in Lat- 
in, Spanish, and French. Although the main pur- 
pose is to acquaint the pupil with the grammer 
and speaking of the language, there are also 
outside events to which the pupil can contri- 
bute. Donating to the CARE FUND gives each 
pupil a chance to show his humanitarian side. 
The money is used to send CARE packages to 
either a Spanish, Italian, or French speaking 
country each year. In tune with the Christmas 
spirit, the Spanish classes sponsor a Christmas 
Party. Also pupils enrolled in Latin sponsor a 
Roman Banquet in the Spring. For those inter- 
ested in f ui'thering their knowledge or beginning 
a vocation, language is necessary. All three lang- 
uages serve as stepping stones to the future. 

CAKE ENOUGH! Pupils of the Language Depannient 
cimtribute time and monev to the CARE FVXP. 


PYTHAGORAS WAS RIGHT! Demonstrating the correct form, Gloria Apple ex- 
plains a theorem to her geometry class. 

Science and math set the pace for our 

AVOGADRO AND FRIEND? Futhering their know- 
ledge of science, Jack Vaughn and Bill Russell experi- 
ment in Chemistry. 

An increasing interest in science has 
brought additions to the faculty at George 
Washington High School. Twelve-hundred stu- 
dents compose the classes in chemistry, physics, 
biology, and physical science. Here, students 
study with facilities that surpass most high 
schools in Indiana. Not only does the depart- 
ment maintain a well-equipped laboratory, but 
it also has a science library. This outstanding 
library contains many volumes to stimulate an 
interest for advancement in science. Through- 
out the past year, this department has been 
awarded many distinct honors. In the fall our 
school was represented by thirty-four students 
at the Indiana Junior Academy of Science. 
Craig Johnson was elected President of the 
Academy, and Pat Kira was named Co-Out- 
standing Girl Scientist for the year. Through 
the study of science, we strive to encourage the 
students of George Washington High School to 
broaden their horizons and realize the necessity 
of this fascinating subject. 


IT'S MOVING! Classmates Helen Lucas, Steve Shew, 
Cindy Allen, and Eleanor Spirestone prepare a slide to 
study microscopic life in a drop of water. 

The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, 
Greeks, and Romans all used symbols to repre- 
sent their numbei's. As centuries have passed, 
new methods have come into existence which 
make it possible for us to better understand 
the use of figures. Math is a sound basis upon 
whicli our culture is built. Students with a good 
background in mathematics realize how impor- 
tant it is in their lives. At Washington, ninth 
graders have the opportunity to take algebra or 
general mathematics. Some students then ad- 
vance to geometry, more advanced algebra, and 
in some cases solid geometry. During their sen- 
ior year, students who excel in math can fur- 
ther their knowledge and take college algebra, 
analytical geometry, trigonometry, or senior 
math. Math, just as everything else in this mod- 
ern world, is progressing rapidly. At Washing- 
ton the Mathematics Department is constantly 
taking steps to keep the students aware of the 
change in the world of mathematics. 

future endeavors 

IT'S A WOMAN'S WORLD: Katherine Sommer explains 
principles of solid geometry to her all male audience. 

THERE IT IS! Students in world history have located 
something interesting for class discussion. 

Discussions highlight history study 

LOOKING AROUND! Mildred Lee, Glen Williams, Kar- 
en Thompson, and Brenda Baker try their skill at loca- 
ting different parts of the world. 

Young people learn from the past and pres- 
ent to help build a better future. History gives 
young Americans ideas with which they can 
apply themselves so that our nation will suffer 
no decline in power and diplomacy. Higher goals 
are easier to attain with a fair knowledge of his- 
tory. Freshmen and Sophomores may enroll in 
world geography and world history. After Uni- 
ted States history is completed,, seniors are re- 
quired to take American government the first 
semester and economic problems the next. Op- 
tional courses that are offered are Indiana his- 
tory and international relations. These classes 
participate in radio programs, panel discussions, 
debates, and mock conventions. Each facet of 
history is analyzed and thoroughly covered so 
that each history student emerges a well-edu- 
cated and well-prepared citizen who will carry 
on this nation's tradition of moral, religious, 
and political freedom in the future. 


Progress as we prepare 

for vocations 

SPEED COUNTS! Mr. Caimichael dictates the lesson 
wliile his shorthand class pushes for speed and accuracy. 

MAY I HELP YOU? Two pupils 
demonstrate salesmanship tech- 

Pupils learn office practices 

A step into progress is taken when a stu- 
dent successfully finishes a well-planned busi- 
ness course. A student who has been carefully 
trained in business education finds that the ef- 
ficiency and orderliness he has acquired can be 
put to good use. This training is not only illus- 
trated in school work, but also in skills which 
are utilized in many occupations. The Business 
Education Department at George \^'ashingi:on 
High School strives to outline courses which 
supply practical and functional solutions to the 
numerous problems found in the business world. 
Alert instructors keep abreast with any changes 
which add to the final product of a well-trained 
student. Evidence of our enthusiasm for high 
caliber work is found in the girls and boys from 
this school who have taken positions through- 
out the city. Silhouettes of progress are clearly 
shown upon the strong background of good 
business education. 

ADDITION IN NO TIME! JNIrs. Pittman demonstrates 
to Ronald Tice the proper use of tlie adding- machine.

ATTENTION, PLEASE! Steve Dalzell explains pro- 
cedures to POST staff members Carolyn Buckner, 
Diane Schwalm, Myra Kerr, Diane Yovanovich, Gary 

ilcFall, Jo Ann Campbell, Jerry Fultz, Judy Hinton, 
Louis Dimitroff^ and Emily Sherer. Standing are Dick 
Johnson, Sherry Selch, Janice Potter, and Linda Jeter. 

Publication staffs 

ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO. Checking the POST'S pro- 
gress are Janice Potter, business manager; Steve Dal- 
zell, editor-in-chief; and Shei'ry Selch, assistant editor. 

Recording the history of the busy year 
1961 and 1962 is the ultimate goal of the publi- 
cations staff. The POST staff tries to recapture 
days of the year gone by. The business mana- 
ger of the POST sees to it that the sales cam- 
paigns, picture sales, and other journalism busi- 
ness runs smoothly. Although the year of 1962 
has not passed, the yearbook captures glimpses 
of a promising year. This is the challenge of 

Bi-weekly, the SURVEYOR is distrubuted 
to every Continental subscriber. The editor-in- 
chief works diligently to bring the subscriber 
the latest news and information of Continen- 
taland. Before the newspaper reaches a single 
person, the editor checks and rechecks it so 
that it is in good order when it is distributed. 
As we move on to bigger and better things, the 
"Washington Way" is illustrated by the publi- 
cations staff in its newspaper and yearbook. 

BIG WHEELS! Editor-in-chief Evelyn Thomas gives 
assignments to her editorial staff Carole McKinney 
Charles Spurgeon, Richard Kellems, and Russell Ai-nett.

and take proper care of her clothes. 

Shopmen develop manual skills; 

striving through the years to keep up 
with the ever growing needs of industry, our 
Industrial Arts Department has increased its 
facilities. Regardless of what a student is plan- 
ning to be, the latest equipment and the most 
highly trained instuctors are available to pre- 
pare him for a future occupation. A wide array 
of courses is offered by our Industrial Arts De- 
partment. Many of our courses such as press 
work and auto shop are offered for three 
years. If a longer period of time is desired a 
course in drafting, electricity, and woodwork- 
ing may be selected. 

The print shop preserves lasting memories 
in THE POST and bring to the student body 
current news in THE SURVEYOR. The print 
shop also prints all official documents for the 
school. Washington is fortunate in having such 
a well-equipped Industrial Arts Department. 

HOT OFF THE PRESS! Don McQuinn and Jim Posey 
watch as finished prints come out of the press. 

Home economics is one of the many cours- 
es given at George Washington High School 
which prepares young people for the future. 
With the clean and modern kitchens in the 
cooking rooms, and the adeciuate sewing facili- 
ties, this course of instruction becomes instruc- 
tive as well as constructive. After the comple- 
tion of this subject, the boys and girls have a 
feeling of accomplishment. Washington High 
School shares in the responsibility of training 
the homemakers of tomorrow. Through the 
years, home economics has become a very im- 
portnat subject. Today it is a very interesting 
and beneficial class. It adds much to the later 
development of the student. It also helps the 
stuendt to become more self-confident and will- 
ing to try to accomplish what seems to be im- 
possible. Through the work of the home econo- 
mics faculty, the student learns much about 
making a house a well-kept home. 

EIGHT ON TEN! Henry Cook works on a slug of type 
to be used for a school publication.

Musicians captivate audiences as 

Sound the trumpets! The marching Con- 
tinentals are coming up the field of success. 
Many compliments were received for their 
great performances throughout the year. 
Their cooperation as a group illustrates their 
excellent school spirit. Credit is due to Director 
Mr. Ray C. Funk, Drum Major Robert Bremer, 
and the baton twirling majorettes for the fine 
work they have displayed this year. Perhaps a 
few schools have a larger musical organization, 
but as far as performance is concerned, Wash- 
ington's band is considered one of the best in 

The orchestra started this year with a 
wide-span program ahead of it. The orchestra's 
abilities are displayed during the year by per- 
forming at P-TA meetings, the Spring Music 
Festival, school convocations, and at Central 
State Hospital. Four people, chosen for excell- 
ence in music, are taken from each city high 
school to perform in the All-City High School 
Symphony during the winter. These activities 
help make music a more enjoyable pursuit.

Chorus, Ensemble perform for city 

What better way can one find to pass the 
time than by singing? As the seasons fade into 
years, the moods of their songs are captured in 
music. Many opportunities are offered for 
musically inclined students to show their tal- 
ents. The general groups are the Boys' and 
Girls' Glee Clubs. The selective groups are the 
Girls' and Boys' Concert Clubs and the Girls' 
Ensemble. The most selective groups are the 
Colonial Chorus and the Continentalaires. These 
groups visit many communities and bring good 
cheer to everyone. The vocal groups of George 
Washington High School surpas\ many of the 
surrounding schools in city-wide recognition. 
The groups are renowned for performances at 
school. They compete with many other high 
school musical organizations and are known 
for their excellence in uniformity.

Art throughout the ages has been a "mea- 
suring stick" in man's civiHzation and intelU- 
gence. The students at Washington are follow- 
ing in the footsteps of their talented predeces- 
sors. Art is not just a slapping of paint on a 
piece of canvas. Into these various pictures goes, 
a little bit of each person, their feelings, ideals, 
and of course their talents. Progression in time 
also means an advancement in the abilities to 
supply students with more and more art sub- 
jects. New this year is a course in lettering. For 
the especially artistic student there are advanc- 
ed courses in art and craft. Jewelry also adds a 
variation to the normal art course. Students in- 
terested in the commerical aspect of art find an 
outlet to their talents in commerical arts. This 
course covers fashion illustrations and adver- 
tisements. We, at Washington, wish to commend 
this award-winning department for the wonder- 
ful work it is doing with talented students. 

FINISHING TOUCHES. Mr. Jenson helps a student 
complete his piece of sculpture. 

Feelings, ideals, and talents shown in art 

PRECIOUS JEWELS? Tony Weddle enjoys making- 
jewelry to use as practical gifts. 

BLENDING COLORS. Working with chalk and explor- 
ing design are two of the projects of Art III classes. 

Progress as we gain 

physical coordination 

UP AND OVER! As Mr. Luzar gives assistance, Dillion Jump makes use of tlie spring 
board to leap over the gymnasium apparatus. 

Physical education plays a big role in the 
first semester of many freshmen. Because a 
year of this subject is required, many students 
find themselves enjoying it their first semester. 
After completing this first year of physical and 
mental training, many may choose to continue. 
Boys may further their activities in sports, 
while girls may wish to help in this displine 
training by becoming gym assistants. 

A credit in drivers education means trans- 
portation to school for many Continentals. \\\i\\ 
the newly acquired parking regulations, the stu- 
dent must have a credit in drivers ed and a safe- 
ty sticker given by the city pohce. Drivers ed- 
ucation enables tlie student at George \\'ash- 
ington High School to practice driving under 
the proper supervision. 

Health and safety is also an important sub- 
ject at Washington. This subject allows the stu- 
dent to learn what good health is and also how 
to keep it. All of these subjects add much to the 
activities of many Continentals. 

RAIL-WALKERS! Girls enrolled in physical education 
classes increase their muscular skill and coordination 
while working on the balance beams. 



COURT MARTIAL? Members of the officers disciplining board, Donald Bee, John 
Heinzmann, and Mickey Eller, decide on the punishment for Richard Burdette. 

Cadets receive officers' training 

A TOUCH OF CHARM. Janice Nash adds glamour to 
Washington's military unit as vice-principal Mr. Mahan 
crowns her Military Ball Queen. 

BEST DRESSED MAN? Cadet Jerry Banks wonders 
if his uniform will pass the close inspection of spon- 
sors Cheryl Swartz and Janice Nash. 

OLD GLORY! Displaying the national colors arc Jerry 
Housel, Bob Stowe, Britt Burks, and Bud Carroll. 

Mind and body health stressed in ROTC 

BULLSEYE! A member of the 
R.O.T.C. Rifle Team takes aim on 
the school shooting range. 

Man has always practiced the art of self- 
defense. The boys who enroll in ROTC learn the 
lunclanientals of this skill. Whether it is clean- 
in:;' rifles, marching with the color guard, or 
being judged during inspection, they present 
themselves in a uniform fashion. Once a week 
the boys in the ROTC are judged on their ap- 
pearance and knowledge of the ROTC by tlieir 
sponsors. The experience gathered here gives 
young men a chance to prepare for a stable fut- 
ure. One highlight of the ROTC year is the an- 
nual Federal Inspection. Here, the boys display 
v/ith pride their acquired skills. Another high 
point in the ROTC boys year is the traditional 
Military Ball, wliich offers a touch of charm and 
glamour to the yearly activites. The boys \\ ill 
look back and remember this position of honor 
they held during their high school vears. 



Cloyd J. Julian, our principal, officiates over 
the faculty of our school to make sure it runs 
smoothly and efficiently. The faculty is sub- 
divided into department heads and then come 
the teachers with whom the student is more in 
contact with during' his schooling. The teachers 
add a personal touch to daily classes. Often, it 
is these teachers who arouse in the pupil the de- 
sire to go to college and learn all he possibly 
can. Another facility available for the students' 
benefit is the new guidance office, which main- 
tains counselors who are willing and able to aid 
the student in the choice of a college or a voca- 
tion. One counselor is assigned to each class, 
and he works closely with the homeroom tea- 
cher. By taking advantage of the facilities of- 
fered, the student can make his four year stay 
at Washington a rewarding, worthwhile, and 
long remembered experience. 

THIS IS MR. JULIAN: Mr. Julian addresses the boys 
and their parents at the Fall Sports Banquet.

Honor winners represent Washington 

ARE YOU SURE? Pat Kira, Frank Starkey, Gorden 
Clark, and Craig Johnson, the traveling scientists, com- 
pare notes taken from their college trips this summer. 

Cultivating new interests, Continental rep- 
resentatives took part in conferences in var- 
ious parts of the state and nation throughout 
the entire year. Representatives to Hoosier 
Boys' and Girls' State were given the opportun- 
ity to organize and run a simulated state gov- 
ernment. Interested science students furthered 
their knowledge of scientific concepts by at- 
tending the conferences pertaining to the var- 
ious fields of science. Government minded stu- 
dents were given a chance to hold mock sessions 
of the Senate and House of Representatives. 
They also passed bills at the Purdue Legislative 
Assembly. Representatives of the Journalism 
Department took part in three conferences held 
at Indiana University during the summer. 
Through these conferences the young journa- 
lists gained a better understanding of journa- 
lism and brought back to Washington many 
ideas to improve Continental publications.

Tlie development of character and minds 
is the basis for the organization of many clubs. 
One of the many clubs of Washington High 
School is the Future Teachers of America. 
These members are enthusiastic about teach- 
ing. They are called cadet teachers and are ac- 
cepted only if they have at least a C-average. 

Another club is the Bible Club in which 
the understanding of religion is discussed. 
These members review the life of Christ and 
his teachings to understand more f ul 1 y the 
meaning of the Bible. 

The Latin Club makes Latin enjoyable and 
practical. The Roman Banquet is held for the 
members reminiscent of Roman days. 

The Drama Club with the actors and back- 
stage artists add glamour to acting. Thespians 
is an exclusive club in which individuals must 
earn a certain number of credits in drama. 
Like the Drama Club, the thespians sponsor 
many plays and perform for the student body. 


SHOW PEOPLE! Trying to show that there's no busi- 
ness like show business, members of the Thespians are 
Jack Vaughn, Karren Genty, Gary McFall, Charletjc 
Zeronik, and Vicki Burns.

Organizations stress 

The girls of Y-Teens learn to grow mental- 
ly in many ways. They learn to live with other 
groups of people, learn to help one another in 
times of need, and learn to enjoy each other's 
company. In one big word — they learn togeth- 
erness. Y-Teens are a branch of the Young 
Women's Christian Association. This non-pro- 
fit organization teaches the youth of today the 
importance of a spiritual and mental growth 
as well as physical growth. During the year a 
nut sale is sponsored by the Y-Teen club. Prizes 
are awarded to the girl with the highest total 
of sales. 

One would think that only boys would be 
interested in the Chess Club, but the Chess 
Club of George Washington High School devel- 
ops this intellectual game for both boys and 
girls. Making chess a sport is the purpose of the 
club. It also strives to develop the mind in logic 
and concentration powers. The members of this 
club find that chess is an absorbing game. 

Two clubs that influence the minds of our 
students are High School Red Cross and Science 
Club. The High School Red Cross aids students 
in developing an attitude of sharing and help- 
ing. Their many duties include collecting cloth- 
ing and money to send to hospitals. A yearly 
conference is held to obtain information on the 
progress of the High School Red Cross program 
in each school. At the end of the year members 
understand a great deal more about being will- 
ing helpers. 

Exploring the known and unknown science 
is the work of the Science Club. They have 
guest speakers, special projects,, and films on 
various subjects. The Science Club points out 
the beauty of n a t u r e and its way of life, but 
members are also interested in man's adapta- 
tion of natural forces for useful purposes. The 
Science Club offers many hours of enjoyable 
extra activity for budding scientists. 

WILLING TO HELP. Officers of the High School Red 
Cross are Sandy Gray, Sharon Dalton, Jackie Stillwell, 
John Rust, Paulette Frye, and Tom Rust, president.

D. Holloway, K. Hoffman, M. Eller, C. Spurgeon, G. 
McFall, J. Vaughn, L. Orr, and R. Johnson. Mr. Ron- 
ald Thomas is assistant director of the club. 

Naturalists and Junto clubs take field trips 

The Junto Club and the NaturaUst Club are 
joined by the students because of a curiosity to 
seek knowledge of the world. Trips to histori- 
cal places and museums aid in the gaining of 
knowledge of our much explored earth. Seeking 
new discoveries to widen their knowledge of 
unknown facts of history are the pleasures of 
elements the Junto Club offers these young stu- 
dents. Better understanding of history creates 
a challenge to a greater knowledge of the years 

Another club at Washington High School 
also interested in the world and its elements is 
the Naturalist Club. They explore the secrets 
of nature and are impressed by its excellence to 
create such beautiful and wonderful works of 
art. The students join together in exploring na- 
ture by field trips and references taken from 
nature books. The ways of nature and history 
are still unsolved but through enthusiastic 
study we learn many things become clearer. 

NATURE LOVERS. Members of the Naturalist Club 
are Vivian Garrison, Evelyn Thomas, Gordon Clark, 
Jean SoiTell, Richard Roberts, Carole McKinney, and 
Pat Kira, president and field trip leader. 


students producing higli quality work in 
journalism are honored by receiving member- 
ship in Washington's chapter of Quill & Scroll,

WHEEL OF FORTUNE. With the spin of a wheel 
Kathy Hazelwood was named Indianapolis Yards-Parks 
Queen and will represent Indiana in Washington D.C. 
during the summer celebration. 

Adding a special touch of charm to the 
school year, queens reign over various impor- 
tant events. Kicking off the football season, a 
jamboree queen is chosen by the varsity foot- 
ball team. Then in the middle of the season, the 
entire student body selects a homecoming queen 
and court. Still reigning over athletics events, 
a track queen and court are chosen by the track 
team in the spring. They are p r e s e n t at all 
meets and give out awards as they are won. 
Two special honors are the Princess of Light 
and the Yards-Parks Queen. Both of these girls 
must represent Washington outside of the im- 
mediate community. The Princess of Light vies 
for a top queenship chosen by chance just as 
the Yard Parks Queen does. This year Kathy 
Hazlewood, Washington's Yard-Parks Queen, 
won this title for the entire city. 

Football queens add royalty to fall season

end of a pass as he goes for a first down. 

The varsity gridders, a team picked to 
watch, failed to show winning form. However, 
their two wins and one tie do not include all of 
the gains made. Two quarterbacks, Joe Puri- 
chia and Randy Payne, called plays which put a 
scare into the offenders,, as Bill Hattiex placed 
high on the city scoring list. The fans gave 
their support as the season progressed, but 
Coach Joe Tofil couldn't seem to build a fire un- 
der the boys. Injuries hurt the Big Purple, and 
Joe Purichia watched the Cathedral game from 
the sidelines. Inexperience was also a factor 
causing the team to falter. The team didn't 
seem the greatest, but the boys did their best.

CO-CITY CHAMPS! This was the title 
earned by the tough freshman gridders and 
their coach John Williams, as they finished the 
season with a 7-1 record. The Little Purple 
started out the season with a victory over Man- 
ual 6-0, and backed this up with a rousing win 
over Shortridge 13-0. The outstanding playing 
of quarterback, Eddie Bopp, added the final 
touch to a strong defense to take the frosh team 
to another triump over Broad Ripple 12-7. From 
that game through the rest of the season there 
was no stopping the shotgun offense and the 
charging line of our freshman team. They 
downed Ben Davis 28-0, Cathedral 18-0, and 
Tech 13-6. The only blemish on the record was a 
loss to the Scecina Crusaders 14-7. They ended 
the year with a win over Howe 14-0, and full of 
good prospects for next year's teams. 

CONGRATULATIONS "SON." Principal Cloyd Julian

Led by a new coach, John Bradley, the 
cross country team won three of four dual 
meets. In two three-way meets the hustling 
harriers ran first and second respectively. The 
flying Continentals placed fourth in their own 
invitational. They also captured a fourth place 
in the Columbus Invitational. Going on to Howe, 
the harriers finished in tenth place. They closed 
out the season with a fourth in the City Meet 
and thirteenth in the Sectionals. Dennis Grider 
the little sophomore, led the team all year. 
Some of his accomplishments include capturing 
a first in the Southport Invitational and setting 
a new meet and course record of 10:16. Dennis 
ended the season by placing second in the city 
and fourteenth in the state. 

The reserves also turned out a winning 
year with a blue ribbon in their one dual meet, 
and the frosh hill-and-dalers lost only one 
scheduled meet all season. 

Underclass cross country teams recorded 
excellent seasons, and next year they will pro- 
vide power packed varsity competition.

Varsity spirits soar as 21 opponents 

Varsity basketball players this year earn- 
ed for themselves and the school one of the fin- 
est seasons ever recorded by a Washington 
team. Their courage and ability, along with 
their wonderful desire to be the best, made the 
Washington five one of the most respected bas- 
ketball teams in the state. The season ended 
with a 21-3 overall record— the best ever re- 
corded by a Washington varsity team. How- 
ever, even this splendid record cannot begin to 
show the team work and hard practice that 
went into this season. In their first trip to the 
Southport Sectionals the Olivermen almost took 
the whole show by sweeping past Decatur Cen- 
tral, Sacred Heart, and Manual. During the 
championship game of the Sectionals, the team 
played a tremendous game, but a spirited 
Southport team came out on top. The varsity 
team, even though they didn't come home with 
the sectional trophey are real champions no 
matter what way you look at it.

Reserves overpower 16 challengers 

The reserve team and their coach, Richard 
Harmening-, ended a very successful 1961-62 
season with a 16-3 overall record. Opening the 
season with a thrilling double overtime victory 
over Howe, the B-ballers went on to defeat 
North Central, Lawrence Central, Warren Cen- 
tral, Cathedral, and Franklin by wide margins. 
The City Tourney saw the reserves defeat 
Broad Ripple and then bow to Tech in the semi- 
final game. Undaunted by this unexpected 
downfall the team went on to roll over Ci'aw- 
f r d s V i 1 1 e, Wood, Broad Ripple, Speedway, 
Scecina, Ben Davis, Shortridge, and Arlington. 
Washington's reserve five had another thrilling 
game as they defeated Manual in a heated over- 
time session. These victories were blemished in 
part by the other two losses of the year, one to 
Sacred Heart and the other to the Tech Titans. 
The spirited reserve team not only had a suc- 
cessful season, but gained invaluable experience 
and training, and certainly left Washington's 
hopes high for a winning varsity season. 

IT'S THIS WAY, BOYS! Coach Harmening gives his 
reserve players a few instructions during a time out. 

liers of the Freshman 
Championship team are 
row 1: Richard George, 
Bill Keller, Edward Bopp, 
Bill Hedges, Steve Purich- 
ia; row 2: Phil Poulos, 
Mike Morris, Steve Wool- 
sey, Jerry Carnes, Phil 
Locke, Coach Russell Mc- 
Connell ; row 3 : Ralph 
Taylor, Mark Zupan, Char- 
les Rowland, Ted Wil- 
liams, and Steve Warren. 

Frosh capture city net title 

CITY CHAMPS! Once again Coach Russell Mc- 
Connell completed a winning season (14-3) with 
his freshman team. The big difference this 
year v;as that their winning streak included 
the Freshman City Championship. Combining 
speed and ability vv'ith a strong desire to win, 
the "Little Purple" opened the season with a 
victory over Speedway, Cathedral, Scecina, Ben 
Davis, Sacred Heart, Howe, Tech, Arlington, 
and Southport. These victories were marred by 
the loss of only three games, Wood, Warren 
Central, and Attucks. Paying no attention to 
these losses, the frosh roundballers went on to 
sweep the City Tourney in championship style. 
In the opening game, they defeated Shortridge 
by a narrow margin of 23-22, but they quickly 
recovered from this near loss to roll over Man- 
ual in the semifinals, 37-31. Victory in these 
two games put the "Little Purple" in the 
Championship game against a fine Attucks five. 
Led by Ralph Taylor and Bill Keller the frosh 
five displayed amazing drive and spirit to come 
from behind and defeat the highly regarded 
Tigers, 28-27. 

BLAST off: Freshman player Charles Rowland 
jumps high and fast after a loose ball. 

Washington's matmen have finished ano- 
the fine season, by winning five, losing five. The 
grapplers got off to a bad start but finished out 
the season winning the last three out of four 
meets. The matmen dropped their opener a- 
gainst Tech, then bounced back to defeat Scec- 
ina. The boys then lost a pair of meets, one to 
Cathedral and one to Manual. The uphill battle 
then began with a distinctive tie with Wood. 
The next three meets were all decisive victories 
over Howe, Decatur Central, and Sacred Heart. 
The season ended with a loss at the hands of 
Larwerance Central. 

The reserve matmen turned in a top notch 
season under the coaching of Frank Mun- 
shower. The reserves lost only one meet in six 
outings. Next year's team can look forward to 
a fine season. 

The freshmen team went undefeated in 
their three scheduled meets. They also came 
through with a second place in the city. Varsi- 
ty Coach Williams says, "There are some fine 
wrestlers on that freshmen team." 

DOUBLE REVERSE? Trying- to elude the clutches of 
Jim Denton is feHow wrestler William Bogle.

Trackmen begin winning season 

Under the direction of new coach, Harold 
Orman, the track team opened the season in 
fine manner. For the first time in some twenty- 
two years the tracksters downed Tech. Next on 
the schedule was a three way meet with South- 
port and Cathedral. The team came through 
with a second place behind Southport. The boys 
then participated in a meet against Howe. The 
team dropped the meet by a score of 70 ?r to 28i. 
For the first time this year Washington took 
part in the North Central Relays. Out of a field 
of ten teams Washington, came through with 
flying colors and won second place. 

The Reserve and Freshman teams won 
convincing victories over grueling opponents. 
Frosh coach, John Bradley, lead his little purple 
to a winning season. Coach Orman is looking 
forward to these boys and says, "There is a lot 
of varsity material on that freshman team." 

UP AND OVER. High jumper Martin Lomen, clears 
the bar as he practices for a coming track meet. 

In its third year at Washington, tennis is 
becoming more and more a spectator sport. 
The boys are realizing the physical as well as 
the mental effort required in tennis. This year 
the team's lack of experience causd it to faulter. 
Next year the team will have that extra little 
boost of experience since this year's team is 
composed completely of underclassmen. The 
team is progressing rapidly this year and should 
look forward to a fine season next year. Al- 
though the team had won only one meet when 
the POST went to press, the boys are gaining 
valuable experience not only in the tennis but 
also in the sportsmanship of living. Coach Dix- 
on said, "They are a wonderful bunch of boys 
and good sports. The boys show the desire and 
are now gaining valuable experience."

Rookies make up bulk of varsity team; 

RHODIUS PARK'S ROGER MARIS? During a practice session, Jerry Sanders hits the 
ball hard in an attempt to elude a drowsing outfielder. 


While experience was the keynote for 
most of the Washington sports, a lack of it 
hindered the varsity baseball team. Mr. Luzar, 
even though no lettermen returned, had a fine 
group of underclassmen players to work with. 
Working as a team with a desire to be the 
best, the boys showed a great deal of ambi- 
tion and drive as they shaped up to a first 
class baseball team in time for the opening 
game of the season. As the POST went to 
press the team had a 3-3 record and was going 
strong. The reserve team hampered by much 
the same situation as the varsity came through 
just like the other teams, overcame the prob- 
lems and showed championship form in their 
opening games. Coach Frank Munshower and 
his reserve team can be proud of their record 
for the opening baseball games. Ever improving 
are both the reserve and varsity teams and both 
are showing more power as the year goes on. 




HE'S SAFE! Tim Giles slides to second base and safety

thews, Bob McCoy, and manager Bill Foreman. 



CHAMPIONSHIP FORM? Bob Clark and Jim Knobel 

practice driving before an important meet. 

Following a State Championship golf team 
is no easy task, but if any team in the city can 
do it, it's Washington. Hopes are high that this 
years team will follow closely in the footsteps of 
the state champs and again this year bring 
home the state crown. The loss of the senior 
members of last year's group weakened the 
team somewhat, but promising underclassmen 
worked hard for another winning season for Mr. 
Hine and his team. Jim Knobel and Bob Clark, 
both members of the state championship team, 
returned this year with just as good or better 
form than they showed last year. It is around 
these two that the team is built. With promis- 
ing underclassmen talent, such as Charles Craw- 
ford, and Pete Clark combined with golfers like 
Knobel and Clark, it gives a very bright outlook 
indeed for the 1962 golfing season. As the POST 
went to press our team was enjoying a string 
of successful matches and showed no signs of 
breaking their winning streak. 

Linksmen hope to defend state title 

FORE! Members of the golf team include row 1: Dick VonBerg, Jim Dininger, Bob 
Knobel, Charles Crawford, Mike Shanahan, Steve May; row 2: Bob Clark, Pete Clark, 
Ed Mahlar, Dave Mahlar, Jim Knobel, Jerry Belser, and varsity coach Dave Hine. 


COME ON AND YELL! Sandy Bulla, Jane Horner, Sylvia Popcheff, 
Karen Hessel, Bonnie Dodd, Vicki Wright, Pat Miller, and Mary Par- 
ker lead a cheer to support our team on to victory. 

Cheerleaders ignite spark of enthusiasm 

With the accent on enthusiasm. Continen- 
tal yell leaders display the best of typical loyal- 
ty. The eight-membered squad was chosen in the 
spring of the year for the succeeding fall 
season by competition in try-outs. Five of the 
squad this year represented the varsity team 
and the other three members comprised the re- 
serve squad who led yells for the reserve bas- 
ketball games. During the grid season, how- 
ever, both groups teamed up to lead football 
fans. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Rosemary 
Whitehead the group plans and presents p e p 
sessions and special convocations precisely for 
the purpose of boosting Continental spirit. 

IN FOR3L4TIOX. The varsity cheering squad con 
ting of Mary Parker, Bonnie Dodd. Sandra DuUa. :

SPORTSWOMEN? Members of the CGAA are row 1: Donna Scharrer, Mae Bail- 
ey, Mary Blue, Martha Gooch, Lucille Brunt, Senytra Williams; row 2: Karen 
W h i 1 1 o c k, Bobbie Jean Davis, Marilyn Off, Brenda Dodson, Judy Viers, Carol

lotte Cook, Mrs. Ransburg, who is sponsor for the group. 

CGAA promotes physical education 

ALLEY-OOP : Judy Viers and Sandy Cook, members 
of the CGAA, turn cartwheels with ease. 

The Continental Girls' Athletic Associa- 
tion promotes physical education among the 
girls of Washing-ton High School. They partici- 
pate in many intramural games such as volley- 
ball, Softball, kickball, and basketball. Enthusi- 
astic participation in intramural games instills 
the desire for the highest recognition among 
the girls. Along with the skill acquired in gym- 
nastics, the girls learn the principles of sports- 
manship, honesty, and integrity. Competition 
is stiff, but the girls seem to enjoy it. Since the 
beginning of the year membership has doubled 
that of the previous year. More and more girls 
are receiving credit for the amount of points 
they make. At each meeting, the girls plan the 
week's activities. Some of the members are des- 
tined to become future gym teachers. 


In his first year as sponsor, Mr. Ronald 
Thomas and the men in the block W's initiated 
many new practices and activities for the Let- 
termen's Club. Along with their regular duties 
during baskatball season, which includes hold- 
ing tlie ropes to keep spectators off the basket- 
ball floor, ushering, and other services, the club 
sponsored an organized cheer block to bolster 
school spirit and spark enthusiasm. This cheer 
block activity was continued at tourney time; 
and, to add a little color and distinctiveness to 
it, the lettermen sold colonial style "Continen- 
tal" hats to all students planning to attend the 
sectionals. This project proved very successful 
not only for the club treasury but for the spirit 
and excitement of the sectional. Also this year 
at the Capers a special talent show was pre- 
sented and met with great success. 

HANGING OFFICALS! Lettermen's Club officers Bob

Awards Day Queen 



Princesses add elegance to Awards Day 

Elegance, splendor, charm — whatever you 
may call it, the annual Awards Day ceremonies 
hold a special magic for each and every Conti- 
nental. This day is devoted to the recognition 
of outstanding pupils both in scholastics and in 
outside activities. Awards are presented in 
three separate convocations: the first for fresh- 
men and sophomores, the second for juniors 
and seniors, and the last for major awards — 
especially honoring the seniors with department 

Regally reigning over the celebrations are 
seven senior girls who comprise the Awards Day 

queen and her court. The girls' official duties 
are to present the awards to the I'ecipients at al! 
three convocations. During the last convocation 
the queen is formally crowned in an impressive 
ceremony which the entire school is invited to 
attend. The girls are selected from the top third 
of the senior class and voted on by all the senior 
members. The names of the twenty-one who 
receive the highest number of votes are then 
submitted to the rest of the school for a second 
ballot in which the final seven are named. All 
in all, the festivities are a memorable experi- 
ence for everyone, spectator and participant. 

MAY PRINCESSES! The May Queen Court is composed of top row (left to 
right): Deanna Johnson, Sandra Marsli^ Beverly Carpenter; bottom row: 
Maxine Kennedy, Barbara Doll, Ruthanne Burke. 


OUTSTANDING CITIZEN. Sherry Selch, ouUsUuiding 
senior girl, was selected DAR Good Citizen. 

Each year seniors assume many addition- 
al activities that pertain to their own gradua- 
tion as well as to the efficient running- of the 
school. An activity which is only for freshman 
and senoir girls is the "Big Sister-Little Sister" 
party sponsored by the Washingtonians. Each 
freshman girl is assigned a big sister who in- 
troduces her into the social life of Washington 
High. The girls are in the spotlight again as the 
faculty selects a DAR Good Citizen from among 
the top girls scholastically. Not to be left out, 
the senior boys vigorously root at athletic 
events in a s p e c i a 1 section designated as the 
senior cheer block. The first formal dance of the 
year is sponsored by the seniors in December 
when a Christmas Carol and Jack Frost reigns. 
This years winners were Sandy Marsh and Dan- 
ny Jaquess. As the second semester rolls 
around college plans, scholarship awards, job 
hunting, and cap and gown measurement set 
the wheels in motion for the June graduation. 
A busy year is certainly had by all! 

Prospective graduates keep active 

THE END! Misty-eyed Marcia Shel- 
ly receives last minute assistance 
from a senior sponsor before the 
commencement ceremonies begin. 


DRAMATIC MOMENTS! "One of us is lying!" exclaims Cheryl 
Christison to bemoaning widow, Karren Genty. "And we both know 
which one!" she continues, biinging the first act to a climax. 

Senior play highlights dramatic efforts 

For many four-year students the senior 
play climaxes the efforts of many semesters' 
work in the dramatic arts. The play this year 
was a dramatic comedy which took place with- 
in the walls of New York State Superior Court. 
Although a majority of the cast were seniors, 
there were a few underclassmen who aided in 
the production. The senior officers who origin- 
ate and organize most senior activities, also as- 
sisted in the presentation. The play depicted the 
trial of a girl who is suspected of murdering 
her employer on "The Night of January 16th." 
To add to the suspense the testimonies of a 
gangster, an adamant maid, and the tearful 
widow only seemed to muddle the jury until the 
end of the second act. A discovery of a 1 o s t 
corpse sheds light on the real truth and a sur- 
prising ending ensues, when a not guilty ver- 
dict was returned. 

PERRY MASON? As District Attorney Richard Kel- 
lems asserts "Objection," Reid Samuels is forced to 
jump to his own defense during a heated argument. 



Elected officers of the senior class 
are Danny J a q u e s s, Sgt.-at- 
arms; Beverly Carpenter, Trea- 
surer; Joseph Purichia, Presi- 
dent; Tom West, Vice-President; 
Maxine Kennedy, Secretary; and 
James Knobel, Sgt.-at-arms. 

Three parties complicate senior election 

RECEPTIVE PARENTS! At the Senior Reception Mrs. 
Hine, class officers, and other faculty members dis- 
cussed the cost of the senior year and its varied ac- 
tivities with interested parents. 

As autumn leaves fell, so did candidates 
for senior class offices. The "Special T's" party 
raked all challengers into a pile and then burn- 
ed them by capturing every office. But, the 
campaigning was no easy duty. After the an- 
nouncement of the slate of candidates by the 
nominating committee, two parties formed — 
the "A-OK's" and the "Special T's." Then a dis- 
satisfied group broke away and formed a third 
party — the "Independent Bullmoose Party." 
For the first time in GWHS history three part- 
ies ruled the senior elections. Campaigning 
never lacked enthusiasum. Presidential candi- 
dates Denny Troth, "A-OK's" and "Bullmoose;" 
and Joe Purichia, "Special T's" organized their 
parties,, and senior sympathies split along these 
party lines. After many rallies in roll call and 
the final presentation of the candidates, tense 
seniors went to the polls to cast their ballots. 
The election ended as Beverly Carpender bound- 
ed from the office and announced, "We (the 
"Special T's") won every office!"

Top scholars lead class competition 

Education without compstition would be- 
coma dull and boring. At Washington pupils' 
final marks are computed by the Math Depart- 
ment to make up the official class standings. 
Therefore, an incentive is added to the routine 
efforts of pupils. This year the class of 1962 is 
proud to announce its outstanding competitors: 
valedictorian, Frank Starkey and salutatorian. 
Sherry Selch. Frank has led the class since his 
freshman year. Sherry and Beverly Carpenter 
have frequently changed positions ; however. 

Sherry has kept a tight hold on second place 
during the senior year. Frank and Sherry have 
v/on very impressive scholarships for future 
education. Frank received a full tuition, room 
ani board scholarship for his excellent high 
school record and scores on qualifying tests to 
Wabash College. Sherry was named Lilly Schol- 
arship winner and received $1,000. Valparaiso, 
the college of her choice, then honored her with 
a $2,000 scholarship and offered her job oppor- 
tunities amounting to about $100 a semester. 

WON'T IT BE GRAND? Valedictorian Frank Starkey and salutatorian Sherry Selch 
show principal Mr. Cloyd J. Julian campus bulletins for their prospective schools. 

DISTINCT change: Blouse styles create many dis- 
cussions this year as Betty Eadens, Janice Nash, Diane 
Yovanovich, and Linda Jeter gather at a locker. 

STAIRWAY TO STYLES! Junior gals, Emi- 
lie Parsons, Cheryl Swarts, Donna Baldwin, 
Helen Lucas, and Reba Koch, display latest 
shoe and purse fads as they descend the 
stairs with the newest styles. 

Fads build 
social scenes 

Fads, though only temporary customs, can 
play a big part in building the kind of social 
scene at school that reflects an alert student 
body. Through the halls of Washington one can 
see the current styles of hair and of clothing 
displayed in various fashions suited to each in- 
dividual's own personality. This year the bubble, 
bouffant, and beehive "made the scene" as we 
danced to the Twist, Continental, and even 
stomped a few times. While skirts grew short- 
er, blouses grew longer and the styles were 
named for people currently in the limelight — 
"Dear Liz" and "Ben Casey." Something else 
that grew were the purses, reaching a new 
depth of delightf ulness with their suitcase-like 
appearances. Shoes went all-out in varied color 
and design. One pair of shoes might have three 
shades of brown on one side while the other 
side differed with a plain beige color. Certainly 
the keyword for this year's fashion seasons 
were difference with a capital D ! 

HEADWAY TO FASHION! Junior girls Lee Ann Bain- 
aka Jo Ann Campbell, and Joyce Lollar show off their 
outstanding hairstyles of 1962. 


HIGH PRESSURE TACTICS. John Koon, Craig John- 
son, and Shirley Morris sharpen their salesmanship 
techniques in selling their Junior Achievement pro- 
ducts to Mr. Robert McConnell. 

GLENN'S IN ORBIT! Carolyn Buckner, Gary McFall, 
Myra Kerr, Louis Dimitroff, and Gloria Bradford scan 
several magazine articles abut John Glenn's historic 
thi'ee-orbital flight on February 20. 

Third-year pupils find varied interests 

CURTAIN up: Junior Class 
Officers, Sue Douglass, Vice- 
president; Jane Horner, sec- 
retary; Clark Dicker son. 
president; Karen, H e s s e 1, 
treasurer; Bill Richardson 
and J e r r y Fultz, Sgts.-at- 
Arms place scenery tor the 
Junior \'audeville. 


The highlight of the Juniors' social season 
was the Junior Prom. "Heaven on Earth" was 
the theme of the dance this year. Decorations 
consisted of a false ceiling and entranceway, 
twinkling stars, and old-fashioned dance pro- 
grams. The melodious tones of Nick Craig's 
dance band added a finishing touch of elegance 
to this event. A new innovation this year was 
the reserved tables for couples who desired to 
be with certain groups at the Prom. The refresh- 
ments, decorations, and the king and queen com- 
mittees devoted all their time and energy to the 
planning and carrying out of the semi-formal 
Prom. The Prom was the end product of the 
whole class's efforts to sponsor a spectacular 
dance that would make their junior year a 
pleasant and lasting memory for years to come. 

WliATS HEAVEN LIKE? Members of the prom 
committee, who must construct a heaven in the boys' 
gym, listening intently to Mr. Badgley are Clark Dick- 
erson, Karen Hessel, Jane Horner, Barbara Richwine, 
Sue Douglass, and Barbara Cory. 

Enthusiastic Juniors strive for best prom 

EARTH ANGLES? Candidates for Junior Prom king 
and queen who reigned in a "Heaven on Earth" at the 
annual spring event are Sandra Dulla, Cheryl Swarts, 

Sue Douglass, Karen Hessel, Jane Horner, Clark Dick- 
erson, Jerry Fultz, George Marlow, Jim Arvin, and 
Bill Richardson. Mr. Badgley is head sponsor.

The Continentalaires, working together, 
brighten the sounds of music. Their beautiful 
rendition of p o p u 1 a r songs and hymns have 
gained them praise and fame throughout the 
city. The Continentalaires not only participate 
in many of the school musical convocations, but 
they also take part in a c t i v i t i e s outside of 
school. Under the direction of Mr. Charles That- 
cher, the Continentalaires perform with enthus- 
iasm to captivate their audience. Their per- 
formances at the Continental Capers and the 
Big Sister-Little Sister Party were just two of 
the events in which they took part throughout 
the year. Highlighting the events of the year, 
the Continentalaires traveled to Kokomo at an 
invitation to sing for the public schools. 

CHORUS ACCOMPANIST. Mrs. Edna Long, music 
department accompanist, aids the Colonial Chorus and 
Girls' Concert Club performances.

One of the biggest annual events at Wash- 
ington is the Continental Capers. This year the 
entire evening revolved around the theme, 
"Springtime in Paris." The corridors of the 
building were transformed into picturesque 
Parisienne avenues and the various rooms 
boasted of French titles. Even the mothers got 
into tlie act as all workers that evening wore 
French berets to create a more authentic at- 
mosphere. Continentals, as always, enjoyed the 
antics of the faculty in their roles of French 
beatniks and cafe entertainers. The "Monte 
Carlo" game room provided variety and laugh- 
ter in between the remaining student shows 
and letterman shows. Climaxing the events 
Pierre and Cheri, king and queen of the pop- 
ularity contest, were crowned in the closing 
minutes of the evening. 

Maxine Kennedy smile with pride after being selected 
king and queen of the '62 Continental Capers.
